Nestled on Napili Beach, Sea House Restaurant at Napili Kai Resort offers an open-air setting on the water’s edge with the most exquisite Happy Hour menu in Maui.

Winner of Maui Magazine’s 2010 ‘Aipono Award for “Best Kept Secret,” Sea House Restaurant boasts one of the few actual “beachfront” dining locations on the island. From 2pm to 5:30pm, guests can enjoy $5 pupus, their favorite cocktail, a generously served glass of wine or beer literally at the water’s edge, surrounded by breathtaking ocean views and awe-inspiring sunsets.

Appropriately named, the “Whale Watcher’s Pupu Menu” features creative $5 items such as the savory Lani Ribs, coated in Asian BBQ and caramelized, the award-winning Mac Nut Shrimp paired with sweet Thai chili sauce, and the Poke Nachos served on crunchy wonton chips with wasabi cream, roasted pepper aioli and sweet soy.

Cocktails classics include the Lava Flow, Mai Tai or Pina Colada while more unique options are the Napili Kai Mist, made with Parrot Bay Passion Fruit Rum, Midori, Pineapple Juice with a splash of cranberry, or the Napili Sunset, Smirnoff Orange Twist Vodka, Mango puree, pog and a splash of cranberry. There is also a diverse selection of wine and beer.


Sea House Restaurant at Napili Kai Resort is located at 5900 Lower Honoapiilani Road.
